THE STORY:

In 2013, I worked with Passports with Purpose to raise $84K for buildOn to build two schools in southern Mali. Last November, I had the honor to visit the villages of Menie and Folona to see the schools we helped build. The reception I received was heartwarming and overwhelming. It was incredible to see how much it meant to everyone in the villages that their children would be able to get an education - something that we can so often take for granted in the United States.

What I love about what buildOn does is they not only work to bring education to developing communities overseas, they work in underserved communities here in the U.S. to get at-risk youth involved in community service. Better yet, they often bring those youth overseas to help build schools like the ones in Mali.

And even better still, when they build schools in places like Mali and Burkina Faso and Nicaragua, they fully engage the local communities and they require that the villages send their girls to school in equal numbers as their boys - this is so important as educating women is key to help lift communities out of poverty.

So as I train to run the New York City Marathon this summer and fall (my 7th marathon!), I will be raising money to support buildOn's work around the world. I hope you will join me in supporting this great cause!
